Reference Example of Liquid Material Viscosity

The term “viscosity” refers to the thickness or flow-ability of a liquid. Viscosity numbers range from one to millions of centipoise(cps), viscosity chart can help you get an idea of how thick your product is. Although these examples are only average values, they are helpful for evaluating the viscosity of liquid materials

viscosity detection

Note: Approximate viscosity is the data at room temperature -70°F / 21.1°C.
